This may have been discussed a few years ago, but the WBBM transmitter relocated in 2019 from it's original site.   It's diplexed with WSCR and has nite-time power of 42kW.
Default RX location is Wisconsin SDR on 135 of wire. Other RX will be noted.

Autovon, you appear correct.  Thanks for enlightening me.  Lost signal at 2300 utc, probably dropped down at that time.
